Home Remedies for Heartburn
Have you ever had a nasty feeling where traces of your last meal surges into your throat? I have. Most times, in addition to the aftertaste, you also get a burning sensation in your chest that can bring tears to your eyes. If you have ever had that experience, you have experienced a dose of heartburn.
It is caused when acidic content in your stomach moves up your gullet; that is why you experience some irritation there.
Thankfully, it does not last long, and it is also not a regular occurrence. But, be that as it may, I don’t think it is an experience you would love to have frequently. That is why I will be sharing some natural remedies for heartburn in this article.
Apple Cider Vinegar
You could try ingesting about a teaspoon of unprocessed apple cider vinegar that has been diluted with water to help limit your stomach’s acidity level. Just ensure that there is enough water in the solution.
Several studies have shown that licorice can strengthen the mucous coating of the esophageal tract. That way, it could help resist the effect of stomach acid. When taking licorice for heartburn, it’s vital to go for deglycyrrhizinated licorice, and this is readily available in the liquid or pill form.
When having a heartburn, a cup of chamomile may just be all you need to sooth your digestive tract. However, you shouldn’t opt for this home remedy for heartburn if you have ragweed allergy.
Bananas are low in acid, so they often have a soothing effect on the acidic content in your stomach. Please don’t overdo it, though, and make sure that the bananas are not overripe so that you don’t end up with diarrhea.
Ginger is one of the more popular natural heartburn cures because of its anti-inflammatory properties. So it can calm your stomach when used right. All you have to do is use some ginger oil or drink ginger tea. That said, I’d recommend that you speak with your doctor before using ginger oil since its production is not often regulated.
Baking Soda Solution
You could also make a solution from a little baking soda and some water. If you get the solution right, it will work like the regular antacid that you get at your local medicine store. The only downside is that the solution doesn’t have a nice taste. But if you can get past the taste, it is one of the most effective heartburn home remedies out there.
